We’ve turned 4!
VG 4TH ANNIVERSARY GUEST MIX N° 2:
Happy Birthday to us! It’s Versions Galore’s 4th anniversary and we’re celebrating this month by letting some very special guests take over the cover versions controls…
Had the odd pleasure of meeting today’s cover mixtress DJ Dia recently at a photoshoot we were both working on for a handbag company. In between takes and model-gawking we rapped about the genius of 60s electronic composers, 70s sci fi flicks and 80s cartoons. It also turned out KSPC gives this woman some much deserved airtime in the form of not one, but 2 shows: the Synthdactyl Program and The Songs for the Whippersnapper Show
ODing from obscure pop culture overload, I immediately offered her a guest spot.
I expected eclectic and needless to say she did not disappoint.
Here’s what DJ DIA herself had to say about it….
“I have two shows on KSPC, The Songs for the Whippersnapper Show and also the Synthdactyl Program. The Songs for the Whippersnapper Show has been on the air for about a decade now, it’s on 11am-1pm on Sunday and is a mash of kooky fun & clean music. I always try to throw in a bit of everything, it’s like a variety show for your ears. The other show, which has been on for two summers now, is the Synthdactyl Program. It is on from 8pm-10pm on Fridays and is two hours of analog synthesizer music. I play mostly luscious non vocal vintage synthesizer tracks, but will throw in some oozy pieces from current talented artists. So this playlist is a product of both shows. You can listen to KSPC on 88.7fm or online at kspc.org.”
